Description: Dinner Restaurant has served food from our Szechuan and Cantonese kitchen...
Dinner Restaurant has served food from our Szechuan and Cantonese kitchen in the heart of Oslo since 1989 and are proud to continue offering our guests an exciting journey through Chinese food culture. Traditionally, the Chinese meal consists of many different dishes that are shared between guests at the table in order to create a more social dynamic around the meal time. Our menu is structured in such a way that this style of eating is possible with us. Please ask your waiter if you would like to know more about the dishes and produce used. We would also like to share that all of Dim Sum is made here in the restaurant and the Mango Pudding is still made by the same cook that made it back in 1989.

After some waiting for a per-booked table, we had a fantastic dinner with excellent service and great atmosphere. Highly recommended is crispy duck. Faboulous. Servants are attentative without being intrusive. Great hot food (individual choice) it being with seafood, chicken or beef. Go there before the theater, or just for a romantic evening out or with friends or business. I... More

I've been here a few times with both friends and family. It's a great place for both family get togethers, or a place to start your night out with a good dinner. The interior is classy, and the service the same. Have a drink at the bar or at your table before you eat dinner - they are amazing. You... More

This year we opted for something other than the traditional Norwegian Christmas dinner and we were not disappointed. This is a very popular restaurant and when we arrived the wardrobe was a bit chaotic getting coats inn and out. It was sorted and the six of us guided to a table downstairs. We got our menus and and was a... More

Had the jade menu and the food were Amazing, spesially the starters! There is a lot of food with high quality meat and seafood, but the taste of deer and lobster dissapears a bit in the spicy dishes. Good place for friends and family, but quite busy, book in advance!

This restaurant is on a well-known street Stortingsgata in the heart of Oslo. After eating more traditional Norwegian food for a week, the fresh Cantonese and Sichuan flavours (with a Scandinavian twist) were welcome. A highlight was the crispy duck dish, served up like Peking Duck, with pancakes, hoisin sauce and shallots, but with a brilliant red cabbage. Delish! Definitely... More

It is a bit upscale and can be a little heavy on the pockets but it is completely worth the indulgence. There is a waiting period so be prepared accordingly with reservations. The menu and the service at the place are worth what you are paying and the staff was really courteous and helpful. The ambiance and the décor of... More

We had pre-ordered the Peking Duck Menu and it was delicious. This place never seem to disappoint. What would make it even more perfect would be ending the meal with some dessert. Also be aware that 'mild' is spicy (!!) The waitress seemed a tiny bit stressed but was very attentive and nice. A bit of a wait between the... More
